I hadn’t heard of Hermine Deurloo before I saw this video. I wish I had. This performance was recorded live in 2014, and it’s a very nice piece of electric jazz, with an unusual ensemble that includes strings, vocals, electric piano and synth, reminiscent of Weather Report. Heurloo plays a chromatic harp on this cut with a sound reminiscent of Toots Thielemans, with a light vibrato and a clear, unamped tone. Great stuff.

Great — more of this musician please!
Thanks so much for sharing Hermine Deurloo’s music with us. I just spent an hour listening to this angel. What beautiful tone and nuance.
